WHAT IS NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY, TMD & TMJ?
Neuromuscular Dentistry involves diagnosing and treating the muscles, nerves, and other structures of your mouth. Neuromuscular Dentistry is extremely effective at treating temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) which occurs when there is dysfunction with the TMJ joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. Common TMD symptoms can include jaw pain, hearing loss, ear ringing, difficulty moving the jaw back and forth or side to side, migraines, and headaches.
One of the best ways to treat TMD symptoms is with neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry relieves TMD symptoms by correcting bite issues and placing the jaw into an optimal position. The dentist will use a variety of advanced dental technologies, such as digital x-rays, EMG, and radiographs, to determine bite issues and find the optimal position for the jaw. Once the optimal position has been found, the dentist will use any number of therapies such as orthodontics, stabilization splints, mouthguards, or restorative treatments to position your jaw into an optimal position to relieve your discomfort.
Neuromuscular Dentistry has been shown to be highly effective at treating TMD symptoms. Contact our practice in Reno, Nevada, to set up an appointment.
